Torpoint Athletic 0-1 Sholing
Boatmen avoided the potential banana skin in windy Cornwall, to advance into the 2nd Round of the FA Vase thanks to TJ Cuthbertson's goal. It was a scrappy goalless first half, where the strong gusty wind made playing conditions extremely difficult. However, Sholing were the better side and made the breakthrough just after the hour mark when TJ headed in. Gosney made a good stop to keep us in front, but the Boatmen might have added to their tally late on and overall deserved the win - Match Report

Sholing 2-0 Shaftesbury
Deadly duo of Lee Wort & Dan Mason struck again to make it 7 league wins out of 7 and an incredible, 33 goals scored by the striker partners this season. In horrible weather, it wasn't a game that will linger long in the memory, but despite the visitors keeping the score goalless at half time, the Boatmen soon broke through after the break when on 55 mins, Lee Wort volleyed in. After twice hitting the woodwork, Dan Mason got his deserved goal in added time, drilling a shot across the keeper & inside the upright - Match Report
Sholing 6-1 Andover New Street
Dan Mason & Lee Wort both grabbed a brace of goals as the Boatmen went clear at the top of the League. The scoreline was heavy in Sholing's favour, but that wasn't the whole story of the game as the bottom of the table visitors, caused a changed Boatmen line-up plenty of problems when they attacked, but sadly for them, they were weak at the back. Dan Mason opened the scoring on 12 mins, prodding in Castle's knock down. On 28 mins, Lee Wort won and then missed a penalty but on 42 mins, made up for it by scoring from 8 yards. On 53 mins, Jake Hoole burst through the middle and slotted under the advancing keeper. Sholing were sloppy in possession and gifted "Street" a goal on 60, although it was a good finish by Lock. Last 15 mins Sholing created over a dozen clear cut chances and took 3 of them. A handball in the box, saw Alex Sawyer slot home a penalty on 75 mins. 3 minutes later, Lee Wort did a "Bergkamp" flick over the defender to smash in a great goal and on 79 mins, Dan Mason thumped in his 18th of the season after hitting the bar - Match Report
